Troubled Dundee F.C. have been hit by more sanctions in their struggle to stay afloat.
The First Division club , which went into administration in October 2010 for the second time in 8 years, was given a 25 point penalty by the Scottish Football League and then had to face a transfer embargo that will not be lifted as long as they remain in administration.
Despite the points deduction which plunged the Dens Parkers to the bottom of the league, they refused to buckle and have climbed up to 4th from bottom after an unbeaten run of 13 games.
But ,in a statement issued tonight, the SFL announced that the whole of Dundee's first team squad would no longer be able to train during the week as they had been sentenced to 8 hours community service from Monday to Friday inclusive.
To add insult to injury, the self same players will be further handicapped by having to wear blindfolds for the duration of each game, only being allowed to take them off if they needed to relieve themselves at half time.
A decision on stoning and birching has been deferred until next month.
